Aggie’s Fall Fling a success
For one night, the Heritage Inn became a scene from the 1940s. Featuring the smooth music stylings of The Noteables – the 2015 Aggie’s Fall Fling was an evening to remember!
Aggie, who sadly passed away on February 11, was honoured throughout the evening and the event was organized by her son Kevin Dunk. It was a magical evening, with a spirited expression of community feeling.
Aggie was really looking out for us as the venue was filled with people eager to get moving on the dance floor and support a good cause. There were refreshments, door prizes, and live music helping organizers pass the evening successfully.
“Major kudos to all of the musicians for some really fabulous entertainment – and a huge thank you to the unstoppable organizing committee, the generous door prize donors, and the volunteers. Thank you as well to Bud Abbott and Louise Stropky for being such entertaining emcees for the evening. It truly takes a village to make an event such as this come together so well,” stated Patricia Whalen, Assistant Executive Director for East Kootenay Foundation for Health (EKFH).
When all was said and done – and the beans counted – the 2015 Aggie’s Fall Fling was undoubtedly a roaring success; $4,000 was raised to support caregivers by providing patient comforts or to help bring in and deliver educational programs for caregivers and their families.
“I couldn’t be happier with the response to this event,” said Kevin Dunk Chair, Aggie’s Fall Fling. “Attendance was fantastic; the audience enthusiastic, the caliber of the performances were exceptional. The money raised will go a long way toward supporting Cranbrook Caregivers.”
